Dr. Tanner believes in giving back! He has opened his office to serve the homeless and goes abroad to provide essential dental care to impoverished communities. Since 2005, he has planned an annual trip to serve these communities in Honduras, Mexico, Jamaica, Bolivia and Nicaragua. For an example of the need in these communities, in Jamaica there is one dentist per 100,000 people. With so few dentists in the country many Jamaican people have no access to basic, routine dental care.
